Wear To Work: A Plaid Fedora

As temps start to heat up, forgo the warm but boring wool ski cap and try out a hat along the lines of this Original Penguin grey cotton diamond plaid fedora.
The lofty structure and charming plaid print place a cocky spin on your suit and tie uniform.

donald_j_pliner_bronze_beaded_loafers_Blueflys_blog_Flypaper.jpg

Wow. In various Caribbean neighborhoods in Brooklyn, older gents have been rocking shoes like these Donald J. Pliner bronze beaded ‘Pontspbdon’ loafers for eons. What I love about these shoes is how they fit right into the red-hot tribal trend…

For The Boys: Five Must Have 2011 Spring Accessories

Fellas as you too, start leaning toward spring wear, take note of the following accessories will ensure that your fly stays on high…


1. Tropical shaded suede loafers: Lime, mango, peach are some of spring’s warmest tones and tend to refresh and pop an ensemble when stained onto a pair of loafers.
2. A canvas belt: This spring feel free to tug your waist into a canvas belt — choose from various shades of coffee, taupe, ivory, navy, black and white.
3. Art deco cufflinks: Whether you decide to rock your fave cartoon character or show cultural pride, cufflinks are a quick way to get “splashy” this spring.
4. Grey shades: Let your inner kid come out to play with spring’s brightly colored plastic framed sunglasses trend. We recommend shades of grey to add a touch of sophistication.
5. A canvas bag: No longer reserved for arthritic church ladies and slap-happy summer camp leaders, canvas bags are haute; look for laptop messenger bags and toiletry kits.

Oscars 2011: What They Wore. What We Tweeted.

Last night’s Oscars were an anti-climactic end to Awards Show season. With the exception of Melissa Leo dropping the F-Bomb, there were no surprises. As expected, Natalie Portman, Colin Firth, Melissa Leo and Christian Bale took home the top acting honors with The King’s Speech snagging the Oscar for Best Picture.
The show itself seemed to have mixed goals. Hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco were allegedly cast to lure younger viewers to the three hour long telecast, yet the theme was an homage to old Hollywood glamour. The result was a sometimes confusing battle of the generations featuring a funny auto-tune video remix of some clips of Harry Potter and other films… and Javier Bardem and James Brolin wearing matching vintage white Gucci jackets and bowties. Oh and James Franco dressed as Marilyn Monroe. It started to feel very SNL-esque after a while.
As for the fashion, after two months’ of red carpet events, the nominees and stars seemed to hit their respective strides with everyone looking pretty much beautiful. The color of the night was red with Anne Hathaway, Sandra Bullock, and Winter’s Bone nominee Jennifer Lawrence hitting the carpet in dresses that, well, matched the carpet. The men seemed to have worn the same monochrome tuxes and shirts they wore to the Golden Globes. I’m a fan of the black on black suit, but it may be time for the guys to try something else (maybe the electric blue suits at the Fall 2011 Men’s Calvin Klein show?). Mila Kunis looked incredible in lavender Elie Saab Couture as did Sandra Bullock in a sharp red Vera Wang gown with lips to match. But I’d say the best dressed was Rachel Zoe. The stylist may be on pregnancy hiatus, but her presence was definitely felt as client Anne Hathaway dazzled in a new designer gown everytime a new segment of the show began.

What Item Are You Most Excited To Wear For Spring?

giuseppe_zanotti_red_suede_stone_cork_platform_Wedges_Blueflys_blog_Flypaper.jpg
I tend to get quite excited about fashion as a new season approaches, as this not only gives me a “substantial” excuse to go shopping but allows me to rock a whole slew of haute new trends. From “stop and stare” footwear to come hither spring dresses to obnoxious, GaGa influenced accessories, I’m so ready to get my “spring” on!

Trend Battle: Studded Handbags vs Fringed Handbags

From the many flying off of shoulders and wrists, studded handbags appear to be easier to swallow by the masses, but for the daring few who enjoy the showmanship of a fringed handbag, they know it’s nothing like it.
hype_Black_leather_Studded_handbag_blueflys_blog_Flypaper.jpg susan_farber_plum_suede_fringe_bag_blueflys_Blog_flypaper.jpg

Personally, as long as the fringes aren’t leaning toward the gross and tacky, I can work either trend.
